Nana’s House provides the tools, and programs, which intervenes on the social vices and circumstances that prevent children from completing school or EXCELLING.
The center is equipped with open air learning spaces, a state of the art kitchen, toilets, an ICT Lab, Library, Multi- Media/Purpose lab, and offices.
